Public restrooms in Philipsburg (Boardwalk & Front St.)

Recommended Posts

My wife and I will be on a cruise soon with stops in St. Maarten and Puerto Rico. We are not going on any excursions at either port and just plan on walking about. My wife is concerned about finding a public restroom either in general or in a restaurant. We need advice and information on where there are restrooms near the Boardwalk and Front Street in Philipsburg (which is where we will be mostly) Am I correct to assume that most restaurants around the Boardwalk and Front St. in Philipsburg have restrooms available for customers? Are there some that require a fee (coin operated)?

 

Also are there public restrooms in both locations that are not in a business?

Just purchase a beer or coffe at any restaurant.  Or if seeking a free, then I believe the sea shuttle pier (middle one) has factiliies, but would not consider using it.

We love Philipsburg & have been there many times.  Without having to buy any drinks, here are a couple options  - There are casinos in both directions off the main pier in the center of front street.    Walking off the water taxi & going left on Front Street there are 2 casinos  (one on each side of the street) that are not very far.  One is really new since the hurricane & has a door right to the beach.  The one on your right is older & is sometimes short of toilet paper but clean.  To the right on Front Street off the main pier, the casino is all the way to the end of Front street & just around the corner to the left.  However, 1/2 way there on your right (the Bay  side) there is a store that sells liquor, jewelry... & actually has a sign in the window that says they have a free bathroom.  It has always been clean when we've stopped there. 

Hope that helps -
